A Break from our Regular Programming


One topic of conversation raised by Rob this morning at coffee was, “What are the lyrics for the song Blinded by the Light?”

Yesterday Chris and I were sitting on the steps prior to the arrival of the gang. Chris was belting out some tune and I opined that it sounded like “Blinded by the light” and then I went on to say that I couldn’t understand the lyrics that I thought went like this:

“Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a dusional roller in the night”.

I couldn’t for the life of me understand what a dusional was… Well as it turns out, what he is singing is:

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Song lyrics by Bruce Springsteen, performed by Manfred Mann

Mystery solved.

And here is the song for your viewing and listening pleasure.
